Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Teased Through FireStorm OC, Equivalent to a GTX 1080 SLI in Performance
Zotac recently announced its custom versions of GTX 1080 AMP! series, and at the same time, they also posted a screenshot of FireStorm utility which allegedly showed the GTX 980 Ti. Zotac was however quick to change that to GTX 1080, but this bizarre mistake at least suggests that Nvidia might have this beast up its sleeve.
According to a recent leak by ChipHell, the GTX 1080 Ti is powered by GP102, which is basically a bridge between GP100, aka the Big pascal, and GP104. The GP102 silicon measures at the ~470mm² die size, and might have 64 CUDA cores per SM, with a total CUDA core count of 3840.
Further, if the 1080 Ti supports HBM2, we might expect the consumption to fall within the range of 250W power budget. Which means, the GTX 1080 Ti could output 50% more raw performance than the GTX 1080, or roughly equivalent to a GTX 1080 SLI, making it a solid 4K @ 60Hz capable graphics card.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti “Expected” Specs:
- Process Node – 16nm
- Transistors – 10.8 Billion
- GPU Die Size – 472mm² (TBC)
- SMs – 60
- CUDA Cores Per SM – 64
- FP32 CUDA Cores (Total) – 3840 (TBC)
- FP64 CUDA Cores / SM – TBD
- FP64 CUDA Cores / GPU – TBD
- Memory Interface – HBM2 or GDDR5X
- Memory Size – 16 GB HBM2 / 12 GB GDDR5X
- TDP – 250W
No rumors about the GTX 1080 Ti pricing or reveal timelines have surfaced yet, but we expect Nvidia to hold the card until AMD’s Vega launch.
